    Would You Participate In This Type of Flight Review?

    If there was an advanced, voluntary bi-annual flight review with a comprehensive syllabus and 6 hours of training, would you participate?

    How about a little more information on what you are talking about, maybe then people can respond with a more educated answer.

    An advanced, twice a year flight review with a comprehensive syllabus and 12 hrs of training per yr (is that 12 hrs of flight training?)


    Since that averages out to 1 hr per month, if the syllabus was individually tailored it would certainly benefit some but those that need it the most would likely not participate. I probably would not participate either.

    Hmm. I must be one of those that needs it most as I wouldn't participate.

    I usually look for a young CFI that needs a learning experience for my BFR. We do the required reviews and airwork. Then we go do some really slow SuperCub flying with windows and door open while I introduce them to the rudder and how it's supposed to work. Next up we learn to use the rudder and tailwheel combination and why it wants to roll out backwards. Then they usually ask how much they owe and when can they fly with me again.

    Glenn. Sorry I missed you at Cactus. One of my friends had your card and had been talking to you. Was in the KR that weekend. Maybe I'll catch you at Copperstate. I'll be in the SuperCub that weekend.

    You mean like the complete and udder morass the FAA WINGS program has devolved into?

    Glenn, since now it is still a hypothetical question ;-), think about it as an airline style program but geared for GA. Program with a syllabus where you come in and PRACTICE all critical aspects of flying including potential emergencies so when you encounter something you already have a "script" in your mind you can execute flawlessly without thinking. What do you think?

    Marty, just to clarify - bi-annual means every two years and it would cover your required flight review. You do those? ;-)) I hope :-)

    I was "dreaming" more about something like a Flight Safety, airline or military style exercise rather then sitting for an hour listening to a (many times a very good) lecture and then going to do few stalls (many times not even a full stalls ;-))

    Folks, keep in mind the Forum this is posted in: "IMC Club." I don't think the suggestion is a six-hour flight review in your Pietenpol, unless you've got a REALLY nice Piet....
